Dear all, 

I hope 2021 is way better than 2020+1. This is a message to share ideas for a 2021 plan to discuss topics in different events (IETF meetings and interim) and volunteers to present or organize themes.
What you’d like to see?

Some initial ideas:

- internet minimum common denominator: roadblocks, opportunities, solutions for an internet for everyone (tech, legal, regulatory, investment, etc)

- internet for people and the planet: the internet as part of the problem and part of the solution? (how an internet for everyone can be sustainable)

- a network for every-thing and people: challenges and opportunities (IoT, home networks, new satellite internets/ISPs, IPv6 finally?, corporate nets, mobile public & community nets)

- public vs private internet: traffic, content, neutrality

- the maintenance of a public internet commons: software, protocols interoperability, applications, infrastructure (e.g. NTP, IXP, etc)

- the pandemic and post-pandemic Internet

I can volunteer to organize a couple of sessions on some of these topics, and I’d be happy to support new faces too.

Best wishes,
Leandro Navarro
